What Kind of Laptop/Computer Do You Need to Run Spooky2 50

Share this:

Welcome to the world of Spooky2 – the advanced rife system that can help you with a wide range of health issues.

However, to get the most out of this cutting-edge technology, you need a suitable computer or laptop to run the Spooky2 software.

In this article, we’ll guide you through the essential factors to consider when choosing the perfect computer for your Spooky2 generator and discover how to optimize your Spooky2 experience with the right equipment!

What Type of Computer Should You Choose?

When it comes to running the Spooky2 software, the hardware requirements are quite minimal. In fact, any computer or laptop that can run the operating system can run Spooky2.

However, if you want to experience the full potential of Spooky2 Rife, a more powerful machine is recommended. This is because a faster processor and more RAM will allow the software to process the growing database more quickly, resulting in faster search times and smoother performance.

One important consideration when choosing a computer for Spooky2 is the quality of the USB bus that the machine is built with. Spooky2 generators require a steady and reliable flow of power to function properly. If the USB bus is low quality, it may not be able to provide enough power to the generators, which can cause them to malfunction or not work at all.

Another important factor to consider is the size and resolution of the computer screen. Spooky2 software features a lot of information and data. A larger screen/higher resolution can make it easier to read and work with the software. This is especially important if you plan to use Spooky2 regularly, as eye strain and discomfort can quickly become an issue with smaller screens.

In addition to the above, you will also need to consider the number of USB ports available on your computer or laptop. Spooky2 requires at least two USB ports: one for a powered USB hub to run multiple generators and one for the Spooky2 Pulse for biofeedback scans. It is important to note that the Spooky2 Pulse should NOT be run through a USB hub, so a dedicated USB port is required.

Which System Do You Need?

If you plan to use Spooky2, it is essential to ensure that you have a computer with a Windows operating system.

Spooky2 can run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10. However, if you are debating between Windows 7 and 10, it is important to consider a few factors.

One of the main advantages of using Windows 7 is that it is easier to control. You have the option to postpone system updates until a more convenient time, ensuring that your programs are not interrupted. On the other hand, Windows 10 automatically performs updates at least once a month, which may cause interruptions to your running programs. And unlike the Pro one, the standard home edition system does not provide an option to postpone updates.

Despite this, both Windows 7 and Windows 10 can run Spooky2 smoothly.

Therefore, it ultimately comes down to personal preference and priorities. If you prioritize having more control over updates, Windows 7 may be a better option. But if you prefer the latest features and updates, Windows 10 may be the better choice.

Regardless of which Windows version you choose, Spooky2 only requires a minimum hardware requirement to run. As long as your machine can run the operating system, it can run Spooky2 without any issues.

Can You Use Mac?

In theory, yes, you can by using BootCamp to create a Windows partition or purchasing virtualization software.

In practice, however, we’ve found that the more layers of abstraction you add to any system, the more likely it is that problems will arise. And unless you’re a seasoned Mac and Windows troubleshooter, you may find that tracking causes and finding solutions is more trouble than it’s worth.

We recommend that you buy a cheap Windows notebook or used desktop model, and dedicate it to running your Spooky2 system.

  1. the machine that can run the operating system can run Spooky2. Of course, the more powerful the machine, the faster it can process the growing database when performing searches

  2. Are there plans to develop s/w that will allow the Spooky2 to run on Apple computers?

  3. NOTE THIS !

    If you are using an older laptop, cica 2000, then it will have USB2 type ports. If you then purchase a USB hub, make sure it is NOT a USB3 type or higher. Otherwise, the number of generators displayed on the computer will vary from one, perhaps two and very occasionally three if the USB hub is not matched. The USB hub supplied by Spooky2 is of the USB3 type and totally unsuitable for the USB2 machines.

    Mr Jeff Kaczor’s suggestion that Windows 7 is preferable to Windows 10 is definitely a good idea for the reasons given. Alternatively, permanently disconnect your Windows 10 computer from the internet and use another computer to download the SPOOKY2 updates onto the computer running the Spooky2 programme via a memory stick. However, the luxury of running a designated computer just for Spooky2 trials/programmes, might not be possible for everyone’s purse

    Does anyone know if Spooky2 have any plans for an Android OS tablet ?


    1. Dear Friend, There is no such plan for the moment. Thank you for your suggestions. I will reflect your suggestions to relevant departments. We will continue to improve.

      1. Please what size HDD/SSD is needed.
        I understand the need for a number of USB2 including a USB2 hub if a larger system is used. And you mention Power which is Processor and Ram, but capacity I’m struggling to find.

        1. Hi, feel free to contact our customer service at [email protected], our support team will give you much more professional detailed information ASAP:)

        2. I too would like to know 😉

          1. Hi Lisa,

            Thank you very much for your interest in Spooky2. Spooky2 was designed to use with Windows. It can be either a desktop or laptop. You can pick up a pre-owned Windows PC and dedicate it to Spooky2. Multiple USB ports, INTEL processor, 8G memory or plus is recommended. These can usually be bought for a very modest price. Since many of you will wish to try experiments with long run times, this may be a good idea. Thank you very much for your support.

    2. I am so confused… based on internet pics my brand new USB cables supplied by spooky appear to be USB 2 as they are white and not blue . Am I correct in my understanding? If so why was outdated hoods being supplied with new kit

      1. Hi, please feel free to send this question to [email protected], with the photos of your USB cables, our support team will help you further check and give you a better reply:)

  4. There is and to use Spooky2-XM on Windows 10 I would have to disable the updates because I have Windows 10 Pro, or install Windows 7, that’s it!


    Antonio Guaracy Guimarães
    1. Or you can just turn off your wifi. If your not connected to the internet then no updated will occure. If your running long term remotes and stuff like that, there is no reason to update anyways.

  5. I too would be grateful if you would create a version for the Mac OS or even for the iOS? Many thanks for considering this request.

    Julia Tortolani
    1. Thank you for your advice and we will report your suggestion to our technical team.

  6. Vote for Mac OS support

    1. Hi, so sorry to bring you this trouble, and we are working on this.

      1. Hello
        When buying a laptop for rifing, would 10 or 20 Gbps, high usb speed be enough.?

        1. Dear Shanti, any computer with a Windows system would be fine. There are no special requirements for your USB speed. For more questions, please feel free to contact us by email: [email protected]. Hope this suggestion may help you!

  7. New laptops I’ve looked at have Windows 11. Is that OK to run Spooky2?

    1. Spooky2 software can be run on all recent versions of Windows.

  8. I’m a Mac user for at least 18 yrs and now suddenly I have to dive into the world of windows and I really hate to do that. I had to buy a cheap Asus 14″ laptop for Spooky2 GenX essential kit. A couple questions. Do i have to register with Microsoft ? Asus has Windows pre-installed, Home edition S. If Windows is installed, why the moment i open the laptop microsoft asks me register ?
    Can I download the software on my Mac, transfer the file to USB stick and then move it to laptop?

    1. If not registering does not affect your normal use, you do not need to register. For you want to copy the software on Mac with a USB flash drive, you can have a try, we have not practiced it before.

    2. Does it run on windows 11 please?

      1. Hi, our Spooky2 software operates well on Windows 11. No worries:)

        1. I can not get my computer to run the program. I have installed it 10 times or more. Computer doesn’t recognize it. I’m so frustrated.

          1. Dear Melanie, we’re so sorry for the inconvenience. Can you please contact us at email: [email protected]? Our customer service team will help you to solve your problem. Thanks for you support and understanding.

  9. Hi
    I too am an Apple iOS user and, as suggested I bought a 2nd had Dell Latitude laptop. Even though I’ve disabled updates, prevent the machine from sleeping and everything I could think of, when I get up in the morning I find that the PC has shutdown…this is so frustrating…! Any ideas? Thank you

    1. Is it because the computer’s battery is no power? And please have a check with your computer’s setting: https://www.spooky2-mall.com/blog/recommended-windows-settings-for-spooky2/

  10. YouTube will the spooky to program run on Windows 11?

    David Ventimiglia
    1. Hi, David. Please do not worry about it. Our software works weel with Windows, including Windows 11:)

  11. Please make this available for us MacOS users. I can’t afford both a Spooky 2 AND another laptop. :-(. thanks

    1. Hi, we have reported this requirement to our enginner, and they are working on this! Really thanks for your kind advice:) And you do not need to buy an ultra-high-performance computer, as long as it can support basic operations. Sometimes, our Spooky2 users will choose a second-hand computer after some consideration.

      1. Glad to know that your engineers are working on getting up a Mac version. Do you have a release date for it? I hate having to buy a Windows machine just so that I can use Spooky2, knowing that a virtual setup on my Mac is inefficient. This is an unnecessary cost and is so impractical. Windows machines are not the safest and I would hate having to maintain one. Please advise. Thank you.

        1. Hi, sorry our engineer team is still working on it and does not have a release date now. If possible, you can pick up a pre-owned Windows PC and dedicate it to Spooky2. 2G memory is enough for working well. These can usually be bought for a very modest price. Since many of you will wish to try experiments with long run times, this may be a good idea anyway.

  12. I gave up Windows and Mac years ago and only run LInux e.g. Ubuntu. Please consider developing a program for open free software instead of expensive buggy mainstream Windows

    1. Hi, so sorry to bring you this trouble. We have reported this issue to our engineers, and they will make some improvements in the near future:) Really thanks for your advice!🥰

  13. I cant run two generators at the same time with my brandnew laptop, when I start a program on G1 it pauses after some seconds…what can I do?

    1. Hi, we need some photos of your software and setups to better know what’s wrong with it. So please feel free to send your questions, better with some screenshots of your software, our support team will help you have a further check and help you ASAP:)

  14. My concern with a laptop is keeping it plugged in 24/7 as my wife’s battery almost blew from that.

    Also the possible overheating from running multiple units

    Michael Stelmasek
    1. Hi, no worries about this. So far, no one has reported this issue with their computer:)

    2. my laptop is plugged in 24/7 for years now never had an issue. Like anything it could be a bad battery ready to go especially if its a few years old. Use a surge protector to stopp surges of outside power spikes from coming into the room/outlet your computor is plugged into . If your running it all night say add a timer to keep the battery at 100% then the power shuts off 4 5 or 6 hours later and runs on battery power for a few hours when you wake up plug it back in or turn the timer to steady on position if that will make you feel safer or get a new original manufacturer battery.

  15. Hi, my new laptop will arrive tomorrow and it has only 1 USB port. Unfortunately I didn’t know about this blog topic before and ordered with other requirements that received and aslo saw on facebook group (Windows 11, Intel, no S mode, 8GB). I recently purchaged GenX Pro kit, didn’t unpack it yet as I’m waiting for a new laptop that will be dedicated for Spooky use.

    Question… – will it work with 1 USB port? Do I need to buy an extension with more ports? Or better to send that computer back and buy another one with more USB ports?


    1. Hi, no worries. You can buy a USB hub to run multiple generators.

      1. > The second USB port is used to run the Spooky Pulse for biofeedback scans. This device should not be run through a USB hub and thus will require a dedicated USB port.

        According to this information, Emily needs a new computer to run treatment and scanning at the same time. But I guess you don’t need to scan that often, so a workable solution can be to disconnect the USB hub for every scan and then just plug one of the generators directly into the USB port.

  16. We have a older computer with win 7. We are finding that programs are running for days and days, even though the estimated time is 30 minutes. Is is right? We are thinking we need a new computer!?
    Thank you, Georgette

  17. Hey there – seems a lot of folks have had to buy new laptops for this…what are you looking for besides Windows 7 and 2 USB ports? Thanks for the help!

    1. Dear Kara, thank you for your question. Spooky2 was originally designed for use with Windows XP, but it also runs perfectly on Windows 8 , 8.1, 10 and 11. USB 2.0 or greater is required for frequency generator connectivity.

      Regretfully, there are no native Mac or Linux versions. We recommend you pick up a pre-owned Windows PC and dedicate it to Spooky2. 8G memory is enough for working well. These can usually be bought for a very modest price. Since many of you will wish to try experiments with long run times, this may be a good idea anyway.
      Hope it helps.
